Can you get spousal support after two years of marriage in California?
Question Details: Married a girl who is not a citizen and am petioning for her citizenship. She and I have issues and I have decided to divorce her after two years. We have a daughter that was born in the USA. Can she get alimony after two years of marriage?
It's possible, although it's not likely to be much, and not likely to be for long. I'm not a California attorney, but in most states, a two-year marriage doesn't lead to permanent alimony. In some cases, a short "rehabilitative" alimony is ordered, to give the supported spouse time to find a job, or get some job training, to become self-supporting.
I think you should talk to a lawyer in your area, for reliable advice based on all of the facts of your situation.
